I purposed, before the birth of my daughter, to be the kind of mom I'd long wanted to be. At all costs. Unbeknownst to her, my daughter had thrown me a challenge. I needed to use my God-given talents and life's passions to be productive while still working around her needs and her schedule. Here are some daily adventures and small successes.


A handmade Christmas - Part IV

(Whenever moderately appropriate, I like to write four as a Roman numeral. Just to remind me of one of the many great parts of my childhood. You can catch a glimpse of it here, 4:05 into the clip.)

I can hardly believe we're almost halfway through these Handmade Christmas posts. This week, I'm featuring the fruits of a fab and fun Card Class put on by Elena from Just Me.

3 hours and 2 slices the world's best sour cream coffee cake later, I had this to show for El's guidance and my fingers-glued-together labour...
I like all of them, but my fave is definitely the 3 snowmen encouraging one another to "be merry!" My version of this card, shown above, has a familial vibe to it. But Elena's original still has me in stitches. I think it's the 3 Stooges undertone.

You can book a card class with Elena any time of year. Her Christmas card classes run each attendee $15, and she provides all the goods. (Bring your own itty-bitty scissors and glue stick.)

As for me, I'm having a hard time convincing myself to give away these cute Christmas creations.
